Platformers are having a magnificent year in 2017. So far, we have seen games inspired by beloved Nintendo 64 platformer Banjo-Kazooie, like Snake Pass and Yooka-Laylee, as well as re-releases of older platformers such as The Disney Afternoon Collection and Voodoo Vince Remastered, with plenty more new platformers and remasters coming soon.

These smaller games are also often overshadowed by bigger games in other genres as well as their more popular counterparts which all release around the same time.
Here are 5 indie platformers released recently you may not have known about that deserve more attention.
